  • Kitsune Compendium This massive pdf clocks in at 29 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, leaving us with a massive 26 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   Base Kitsune, as presented herein, receive +2 Dex and Cha, -2 Str, are medium shapechanger humanoids, get +2 to acrobatics, may change shape into a specific human form, receive +1 to the DC of their saves versus enchantments, low-light vision, a bite attack that deals 1d4 (I assume usable as primary – since that’s the default for bites, but still wished the Kitsune-entry in the ARG, from which this was taken, had specified that -I like my racial information in one place, if possible…) and […]

  • NPC Arsenal: Kitsune Mistress of Manipulation This new series by Abandoned Arts offers you one NPC-build, a complex one – 3 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page SRD, 1 page character, so what do we get here?   The Kitsune Mistress of Manipulation at CR 7 is a straight level 8 sorceress of the Maestro bloodline – and at first sight, as an enchantment-specialist, that seems not particularly impressive complexity-wise. Where this build shines is in the small moving parts – from racial traits to feats, the character is thoroughly geared towards being a master-spy if there ever was one; With 4th level-spells at DC 23,a hat of disguise, a total of +45 to disguise and smart feat-choices that […]

  • Amazing Races: Kitsune This installment of the Amazing Races-series is 4 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 2 pages of content, so let’s check out these options for the Kitsune!   We kick off with two new feats for the Kitsune: -Kitsune Chakra: Via the expenditure of spell-level ki, you may use racially granted/magical tail-feat granted spell-like ability without expending it. Powerful one – and without the racially exclusive component, I’d start complaining right now. Since it’s restricted to Kitsune, I won’t complain here.   -Shapechanger’s Reveal: This one allows you to revert to your true form by foregoing the first attack of your full attack and make bluff AND intimidate check versus every […]

  • Races Revisited: The Kitsune Clans This pdf is 21 pages long, 2/3 of a page front cover, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 19 1/3 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   The Kitsune-race, like many ARG-races, at least to me lacked what makes a race work – a distinct culture – and hence we kick this pdf off with a massive introduction that features several possible origin myths before we delve into 4 subtypes of Kitsune: Zenko are the ARG-kitsune, whereas Tenko are shrine guardians and Yako are the clanless kitsune. Finally, there are the Nogitsune, kitsune with a malevolent, oni-like streak – essentially the vile, black sheep among the fox clans. (Sorry for the bad pun…). […]
